The Argyle pattern evolved from the tartan of the Clan Campbell – the clan of my paternal Grandmother, who grew up in the glens of Scotland.
Although this argyle stitch pattern seems very modern, it’s actually a traditional Fair Isle pattern that can be found in some very old, classic sweaters from Shetland. Subtle and classic in grey and white, bright colors would create a totally different look.
Suitable for knitters with a little colorwork experience, but you needn’t be an expert.
Size S/M uses about 120 yds of the MC and 80 yds of the CC.
To accomodate the large pattern repeat, sizes S & L are worked with 3mm needles, sizes M & XL are worked with 3.25mm needles.
